Accountants' job prospects looking up
Monday 14 February 1994
But, while job prospects are improving in general, redundancies are appearing in some insolvency departments - 'perhaps the surest sign of an end to everybody's recession', the report says.
The survey shows that graduate entrants are being paid 4.5 per cent more than last year by the biggest firms, but in some areas typical salaries are still up to 20 per cent lower than in central London.
Because recruitment was cut during the recession newly qualified accountants are becoming sought- after as the market improves.
'A shortage of young blood is one outcome of the sector's severe cutback of recruitment during the recession,' the report says.
But it warns that the recession continues to have an effect, with young accountants nervously demanding job security as well as attractive salaries.
In industry the market for accountants is also stronger, with average salaries rising by up to 6.5 per cent since mid-1992.
